How disgusting

Did you know that you can buy an entire hospital floor if you have enough money?  A hospital floor that includes the NICU and then deny access to parents of sick children in the name of “security”?

Well Beyonce and Jay Z did just that for the birth of their daughter Blue Ivy.  Everyone seems to be blaming Beyonce, and while yes i think she’s incredibly selfish and I do put blame on her….what about the hospital?  Not just any hospital either….A PUBLIC HOSPITAL.  How in the hell can a hospital justify the fact that not only did they allow parents to be denied access to their sick children….but they allowed themselves to be bought like a Starbucks cup of coffee and damn whose ever toes they step on.  Are you kidding me with this crap?

How is this even justifiable in ANYONE’S mind?  How is this even LEGAL?  I would have been that hospital and Beyonces worst freaking nightmare if someone had kept me from seeing my child.  I would have called every single lawyer’s number I could get my hands on, the ACLU, the press, the police, the FBI you freaking name it I would have been calling them.  Lawsuits should be filed and people should be sued.  Oh sure, I am more then certain Beyonce and her Beau will release some sort of public apology (that they dont mean and only did to save face)…and the people who dont really care about childbirth and the rights of babies and their parents in America will accept it with open arms….but for the rest of us, and there are a lot of us.  The damage is done.  I never liked either of their music anyways, but you sure as shit better believe that I am not allowing any of their crap into this house, ever….period.  How dare she and how dare the hospital.  This is just completely unacceptable and beyond ridiculous!

    Wow….. I didn’t think that would be legal? So she had the whole floor for “security” and moms could not see their children in the NICU for how many days? Also, that would suck for the moms who have been going to that hospital since day one of pregnancy and could not even give birth there if they happened to go into labor while Beyonce was there. Wow. I wonder how many moms went into labor and were turned away. Very disturbing.

      The hospital she was at has 2 maternity wards…she took one so there was another for other laboring mama’s. Still disgusting and ridiculous

    I too was disgusted and sickened by this situation.. But in society money and fame are the ultimate power and unfortunately they have both.. IMO they should have stayed home and hired their own medical team to assist them..No one baby’s birth is more important than another’s..The NYC Health Dept investigated the complaints and said no improper behavior occurred .. What a shock.. The mayor of NYC said this was more than acceptable, he encouraged it due to a “down” economy.. He too is a multi millionaire.. The lavish and crude lifestyles of these “celebrities” in today’s society has caused me to become extremely jaded and tight fisted with the way I spend my money in terms of entertainment.. I refuse to support the luxurious and frivolous lifestyles of people who think they are superior to me, and rub my face in all they have materially.. Rant Over..

    It is the media telling the story. I haven’t seen this story, but have heard about it through word of mouth. I’m wondering if they only let immediate family (Mother & Father)in and not the rest(Grandparents?)And being a Celeb that did it… I could see families making a stink about Celebs doing something they didn’t like? Just my opinion… Media is good at being juicy;)

    Actually, Lenox Hill is a private hospital and Beyonce did not buy out the floor to deliver. She had the VIP suite and her bodyguards, in addition to the LH security force. There weren’t any families not allowed to see their children and the NICU was never closed off to other parents. 1.3 million is also not the rate for the VIP private suite. That number was completely invented by the media and blown out of proportion. Fact check, much?

      Right because the hospital wasnt trying to save face. The parents who have spoken out about not being allowed to see their children have NOTHING to gain by saying what they have said about what happened. Multiple parents…not just 1 have spoken out about not being allowed to see their children and other family members (who have every right to be there) not being allowed in as well. I do not for 1 second believe the line of bullshit that was spewed out by the hospital lawyers. Period. Not in the US were the almighty dollar reigns supreme

    I imagine it was to keep a private moment private when employees are probably being hounded and tempted by press to get that first photo or scoop of what’s going on. Like or not, they are very public people and while they chose the ups and downs that go with being a public figure, they can at least deal with it in whatever way they can. About on par with Brad and Angelina giving birth in what basically amounted to a rented country. They have the money, they can do it.

      No one, no matter your celebrity status or wealth… have the right to block other people’s access from their own kids due to their selfish desire not to let that first photo leak without the perfect amount of money.

    I just don’t understand why she couldn’t have had her baby at home. Hire the doctor/nurse/anesthisiologist/pediatrician to come to her house and have the baby at home. If you’re going to rent out a hospital wing, you can certainly afford to throw the party at your own place.
